New York – Sony is all about color this summer with the release
today of updated versions of its Vaio P-series netbook.
The P series has a severe rectangular shape like an oversized
business envelope, and it comes in five colors: Electric Orange, Neon Green, Hot Pink, Icy White and Classic Black.
The 1.4-pound netbook is about 9.5 inches wide and just less than 5 inches
tall when opened.
The configuration allows for Sony to place the track pad and
mouse buttons on the LCD bezel so the users can hold it like a large PDA. There
is also a trackball in the keyboard, and, like a smartphone, the device can be
turned to view images or documents in either a portrait or landscape mode.
There is also a one-touch resolution button, so users can quickly
increase the size of the onscreen type. Other quick-assist buttons enable
instant Web viewing without having to load Windows and a Vaio Care assist
button to enable quick maintenance.
The P series is available for pre-orders starting May 10 and will
ship later this spring.
